On March 28, 2018 she married Khamen Price and together they have one son, Kassius Lee. Charlie loved being an Army wife, going to the Farmers Market, visiting Garden of the Gods, eating Skyline Chili, watching the Labyrinth, and listening to Kid Cudi, Fleetwood Mac, and David Bowie.

I will be praying for strength for all the family of Charlie. I was friends with Jeremy and Brandy in Hawaii and was invited to Thanksgiving in 1998 where I met Charlie for the first time. At the young age of 3, she took one long look at me, and said, "your short!" I loved how brash and full of life she was. Jeremy and Brandy, I miss you and will be praying for you all, your friend, Dan.

Charlie was the sweetest little girl and this day may have been the last I ever saw her as I got out of the Navy shortly after this photo was taken. My condolences go out to her family and close friends . May she Rip.

Though I only spent a few short months with Charlie - she made a major impact on my life and my recovery. I really looked up to her, she was like a big sister to me. I remember her always talking about how much she wanted to be a mom, growing her own little family with Ruby by her side. I'm glad that she got to live her dream, she more than deserved it.

Thank you Charlie for always encouraging me to grow, and for sharing with me your light. Thank you for teaching all of us that we are worthy of nourishment and complete, unconditional acceptance. I love you.

We are grateful we had the opportunity to meet you and spend the holidays with you and your family. In the few short moments we spent with you, there was an instant connection and no denying the love for had for your husband and son. You were a true delight and one of the most kindest souls we've ever met. Thank you for being a part of our life! We miss you Charlie.

I knew of Charlie years before we actually became friends. She was always the girl with the big smile on social media that was friends of several of my friends. We ended up meeting at the Greensburg Walmart when I worked there, and spent a long time walking around the store, discussing her less than favorable ex, and all the stupid things he was doing. Through our talks and twitter rants, we discovered that we lived down the street from each other in Milroy.

I was devastated when she moved to Colorado, but honestly it never felt like she stopped living down the road from me. We were pregnant together, shared our first hand in motherhood together, and she helped me grow into a better person every step of the way.

I still can't believe you're gone sweet angel. I'll miss our talks and facetimes more than you know. You were easily the strongest person I've ever known in my entire life. You kept fighting, when most people would've given up long before. I will never hesitate to help your wonderful son have anything he needs, and I hope I get to watch him grow. I feel like I lost my sister, and part of my heart. This world will never be the same without your laugh, smile, or warmth in it. I hope you're at peace.

It honestly was a privilege to have crossed paths with you. I’ve learned so much and appreciated how much of a free thinker you were. There were multiple times you had a different perspective than I did, which made me value our friendship even more. I’ve lost people before but I seriously haven’t felt this kind of pain before but maybe because encountering someone like you was legendary.

Charlie, thank you for giving me the strength to be unapologetic and strong. I know you’re in a better place.

I love you and I will make sure Kash knows that his mom was an Angel way before she went to heaven.
